The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

Another This American Life Appearance Pending

I'm heading into New York City again on Monday in order to add some recording to the dad-stole-my-bike piece that we recorded many many weeks ago, but which they haven't been able to use yet. I assume this means they'll be using it soon, unless I totally screw something up. So keep listening to that radio dial! (Or the podcast.) And hey--if you're listening to the This American Life podcast, why not throw them some money? They're good people and they totally deserve it.

I have printed out the book and am fixing it up both nicely and quickly. One quarter of the book is in pretty much final shape (give or take minor fact-checking), so I'm now predicting completion in six days or so--comfortably ahead of schedule.

Hey Dave:

My, the steps one must go through!

Loved the bike episode: your dad felt guilty and you discovered hope.

You've always given me smile lines ... one of the things I love about you. I like the work you're doing on your theological 'treatise': it's smart without being smug. I look forward to further chapters.
